June 13: Danielle Ate the Sandwich w/ Heather Mae

House Concert
Music at 8 pm; Doors at 7:30 pm

Danielle Ate the Sandwich is the stage name of the indie-folk, ukulele player and songwriter, Danielle Anderson. Her music career began modestly at open mic nights in Fort Collins, Colorado, and was unexpectedly jumpstarted by the popularity of her homemade YouTube videos, that showcase her songs and silly personality. The true power of Danielle Ate the Sandwich, however, is her ability to sing stories both grand and small, with sweet vocals and thoughtful, honest lyrics. Danielle Ate the Sandwich has been touring nationally since 2009, cultivating a loyal and dedicated fan base, affectionately referred to as ‘Fanwiches.’
Danielle Ate the Sandwich has shared the stage and collaborated with acts such as Pomplamoose, Leo Kottke, Mumford & Sons & Suzanne Vega. She has released five independent albums, receiving praise from fans of all ages. Her latest release, “The Drawing Back of Curtains” serves as the soundtrack to the HBO documentary film “Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson.” Danielle currently tours the United States year round and is happily based in Fort Collins, Colorado.




The Denver Post says, “Danielle Anderson is a tender singer-songwriter, a brazen humorist, a fearless young woman. Performing as Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Anderson wields a ukulele, a guitar and her own words to tell stories about people.”
Denver’s Westword describes Danielle as, “cripplingly enchanting with lyrics telling the story of a generation coming of age in an age of uncertainty.”

May 16: Harpeth Rising w/ Harley String Band




"Virtuoso violin solos...Andrews Sisters like harmonies...Harpeth Rising play their cards with class and conviction." Lee Zimmerman - NO DEPRESSION

"The future of original string music..." - Keith Harrelson, Moonlight on the Mountain


"The vanguard of a new species of progressive folk music." Jason D Hamad, NO SURF REVIEW

HARPETH RISING chose to name themselves after a river because water is both dynamic and powerful. These words also describe the music created by the three women – Jordana Greenberg (violin, vocals), Rebecca Reed-Lunn (banjo, vocals) and Maria Di Meglio (cello, vocals). Unapologetic genre-benders, they fuse Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into a sound that is organically unique.

Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship and a deft, yet soulful lyrical perspective. Harpeth Rising’s roots run deep – from their varied ancestry across Eastern Europe to the musical hotbed of the Mid-South they now call home, they weave together ancient and modern ideas, creating a sound that is both familiar and impossible to categorize. 

“We don’t set out to create something different, we just write in a way that is true to ourselves while trying to always expand and explore the new influences in our lives.” says Greenberg. “We’re aware of genre divisions, we’re just not bound by them.” 


After meeting at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where all three members earned performance degrees, Harpeth Rising began on a cross-country road trip. Inspired by a summer spent jamming at campsites and attending folk and bluegrass festivals, Greenberg (violin) and Reed-Lunn (banjo) decided to pursue a slightly different path than their classical backgrounds would suggest. They began writing original songs and performing 4 to 5 nights a week, developing their sound and their repertoire. It was with the addition of Di Meglio (cello) that the lineup was complete, and the three women piled into a Prius and began to tour. 

Despite the presence of only three string instruments on stage, Harpeth Rising produces a profusion of sound generally created by a much larger ensemble. Di Meglio transitions fluidly between providing the bass line and taking the melodic lead, while Reed-Lunn’s highly original style of claw hammer banjo–learned mainly by watching YouTube–is both surprisingly lyrical and intensely driving. Greenberg takes on the role of concert violinist and accompanist with equal facility, and ensures that a lead guitar is never missed. 

From breathtaking energy to intimate connection, their live performances are kinetic events in which their passion and their abilities are equally displayed. Harpeth Rising can create a listening room from a rowdy bar crowd, and can inspire even the weariest of audiences. After only a few months as a band, they embarked on tour of England, which included a performance with The Bath Philharmonia. They were invited to perform at The Cambridge Folk Festival the
following summer, and have since played festivals across England and the United States, including The Kerrville Folk Festival, ROMPfest, Blissfest, The Fylde Folk Festival, The Purbeck Folk Festival and dozens more. Building their fan base in the tradition of all wandering minstrels - passionately and by word-of-mouth - they now perform to sold-out audience internationally.

They have released four albums in as many years – Harpeth Rising (2010), Dead Man’s Hand (2011), The End of the World (2012), a collaboration with master wordsmith David Greenberg (Jordana’s father), and Tales From Jackson Bridge, (2013). Their fifth album, Shifted, is set to release in early 2015.

Opening will be the Harley String Band, three talented singer-songwriters who mine the deep veins of American music and bring back the occasional rough diamond. Supporting each other on a variety of acoustic instruments, they aspire to breathe new life into traditional musical forms.
